Party at Alligator Pond

Smoked marlin, ricotta spring rolls, jerk rosemary tenderloin with bearnaise sauce and a 50th birthday party on the idyllic south coast near Alligator Pond, St Elizabeth.

It’s not every day one lives to half a century, but if you do, make sure the food makes you glad that you made the journey.
